Playful Angels

Oops my halo`s slipped again
I mustn`t take it off to play
Maybe I shouldn`t remove it at all
An Angel`s image is to stay and pray

I have this desire to skip and jump
Hate being the silent helper too
Want to sing and make daisy chains
Why can`t I dance and play with you?

The Archangels calmly tell me off
They say I should be more demure
Respectful of the old traditions
But making children smile is best for sure

I`m sorry I get it all wrong
Maybe one day I`ll live and learn
But until then we`ll have some fun
Please give me a chance, don`t be too stern!

I was having a joke with my son about "slipping halos" and it got me thinking
This poem is the result, hope you like it...
